Events Manager

Apply to be our next Events Manager and help take Hive to the next level.

– Be a part of something bigger –

We’re Hive, a tech scaleup with huge but realistic ambitions.

Our software as a service (SaaS) proposition operates in the ‘HR Tech’ space; one of the fastest-growing sectors in tech right now. 

Our feature-rich platform connects employers and employees by gathering workforce feedback and insights at scale, on a continuous basis – an approach that is now adopted by SMEs and multinational corporates such as Apple, Amazon and Google. 

We’re trusted by some great names (including Tarmac, River Island and Travelodge) and will be adding many more soon.

If you’d like to join an ambitious, competitive, dynamic, fun-loving team at a tech company that is going places – this might just be the job you’re looking for…

Here at Hive we love events! We’ve attended plenty in our time, some amazing, some… ‘less-so’, some have helped us grow our business to the level you see today, others… have left us scratching our heads in confusion.

As Hive continues to thrive we have created the need to recruit our first Events Manager, reporting directly into the Head of Marketing.  You’ll be set free to put your personality into all aspects of the event, from sourcing venues to leading on the event content and evaluating the events success.  You will also be responsible for managing the external events we exhibit at and working closely with the Head of Marketing build a strategy to maximise our returns.
